Early Benchmarks Show iPhone 12 Pro To Be Around 25% Faster Than iPhone 11 Pro
Apple will put its iPhone 12 Pro handset up for pre-order tomorrow and early benchmark results carried out by reviewers and carrier workers have show that the new model is around 25% faster than the outgoing iPhone 11 Pro.
There are multiple scores posted to Geekbench’s results website so far with one of them listing the iPhone 12 Pro has having a single-core score of 1,597 and a multi-core score of 4,152.
That represents a 26% increase over the iPhone 11 Pro’s scores of 1,327 and 3,289 respectively.
There are also multiple scores that are lower than this, although there may be clear reasons for that to be the case. Any iPhone that is still in the process of downloading data from iCloud following a restore or still has indexing to carry out could perform more slowly than one that has already done everything it needs to do.
It stands to reason that the iPhone 12 Pro and its A14 Bionic chip is faster than the A13 Bionic chip of the older device. It’s on the newer 5nm fabrication process and also has double the number of Neural Engine cores to use, too. Equally, the newer iPhone 12 Pro has 6GB of RAM where the older model had just 4GB.
Apple will put the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro up for pre-order tomorrow with devices shipping to buyers the following week. We’ll get a better feel for the performance of the A14 Bionic when more people have hold of it.
